COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Reverend, was created in tribute to the life of Sales Mgr. Tom Boogaard's grandfather, an ordained Episcopal Reverend. Tom was inspired by the life of his grandfather and wanted to create a tribute beer that contained his sterling traits. True to both our "small brewery, BIG BEERS" philosophy and to the spirit and character of the departed Reverend, this beer is strong willed, assertive, and pure of heart, a heart of candy sugar. It contains as many authentic imported Belgian specialty malts as the brewers could cram into our mash tun, and lots of Belgian dark candy sugar stirred into the brew kettle. A divinely complex and beautifully layered beer with hints of dark cherries, currants, and molasses, complimented by an underlying spiciness. Sinfully smooth considering the high alcohol content. Cellarable for 4 years.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2016 Bottle shared by Mart. Clear red amber beer, small tan head. Nose is fruity, toffe, molasses, red currants, sweetness. Flavor is caramel, berries, sugar, dark fruit. Middle of the taste to early taste is empty, caramel and dark fruits kick in in the very late finish and aftertaste, some hops notes and caramel in there, metallic notes. Surprisingly thin. Hides the booze well though.

Pours a mahogany brown with slight, white lacing. Smells of raisins and figs. It’s a pleasant, sweet smell. Taste is sweet from the dark fruit, coffee, and caramel. It’s moderately carbonated and not much burn for its abv. It’s a pretty nice quad.

gripweed57 (2452) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2016
22 ounce bottle. Mahogany brown pour has a small creamy beige head that disappears quickly. Brandy-like aroma has notes of cherries and brown sugar. The flavor follows the nose, with additional notes of vanilla and golden raisins. Sweet malty goodness dominates the palate. Rich and warming with complex herbal hops appearing in finish. This is a wonderful brew, smooth and inviting.
